COVID-19 Awareness and Prevention Efforts in Rural India

In March of 2020, the AMMACHI Labs/CWEGE field team members shifted their priorities from their normal work to making efforts to spread awareness and education on taking precautions agains the spread of COVID-19. They shared verified informational videos and explained preventative measures like proper hand-washing to the members of the village communities. In many places, cloth masks were made and distributed as well.

In Meppadi, Kerala, students and staff from the Amrita PMKVY center in Meppadi, Kerala collectively stitched over 1000 face masks from the safety of their homes. The design follows a recommended pattern advised by health experts. Along with the masks, a small amount of gloves were also made. The masks were distributed to essential service locations like gas stations and banks, and to electrical workers and police

In the Raichur district of Karnataka, in Kurvakurdha Village, 2nd batch tailoring students stiched 100 masks and distributed them to the village community members. In another village in Raichur District- Drampur, 1st batch computer students showed explanatory videos about the effects of COVID-19 and educated them on the precautions to be taken to prevent the spread of the disease. Masks were also distributed to the villagers.

In Bihar, an awareness session on COVID-19 was provided to villagers and vocational training students using tablets on topics such as covering your mouth, staying at home, how to seek treatment, and proper handwashing techniques. Posters regarding precautions that need to be taken were pasted in front of our training center.

In Odisha, rural students in the PMKVY program created some hand-made artwork promoting safety and awareness for their communities.
